The Great Habit Exchange

Yay!! I’ve lost 25.6 pounds total so far with 54.4 pounds to go to reach my goal!  My BMI has dropped from 36.9 to 33.1 and my goal is 24.9.

The Great Habit Exchange

Now we’ve talked about the first 4 steps in the plan to retrain your taste buds.

Today, we’ll talk about the 5th step.

Step 5:  The Great Habit Exchange.

We learn by repetition and we’re creatures of habit.

The more often we perform a task in a routine, the more we imprint it on our brains as something natural we do without thinking.

Do you have to remind yourself to brush your teeth every day, or do you do it as second nature, without thinking?

This is true for our taste buds as well.

The healthier we eat and the healthier choices we make, the less we actually have to think about doing it and the more it becomes second nature.

Habits form quicker than you think.

Studies show it takes 21 days of repetitive activity to imprint it as a habit.

But you have to do it every day.

You have to follow the plan for those 21 days.

If you miss even one day during those 21 you’ll have to start over from day one.

Don’t blame us . . . blame your brain.

Bad News:  You can fall into bad habits in only 21 days as well.

Going 21 days without doing something positive is the same thing as doing something negative for 21.

Good News:  You should be able to do anything for 21 days.

Especially if the payoff is having a healthy diet and getting the body you’ve always dreamed of.

So, we’re going to focus on a 21-day habit-forming plan.

You’ll tell yourself for the next 21 days you’re going to be disciplined, even if you’ve never had discipline in your life, and even if you’re miserable (which you won’t be).

But if you do this for 21 days and you feel no different, you’re free to go back to your current habits if you want.

Is It REALLY So Simple a Caveman Can Do It?

That’s GEICO’s official and trademarked slogan.

But we really couldn’t think of a better way to explain the next post than to give them credit for what’s coming.

Complicated diets and protocols fail.

Simple plans succeed.

For the next 3 weeks – or 21 days – you’re going to follow this plan exactly.

You’re not going to deviate.

Although you’ll likely see some immediate weight loss results, we’re more concerned with the mental habits we’re forming and initial taste-training results.

We’re about to give you a detailed breakdown of what you’re going to eat and what you’re going to avoid for the next 3 weeks.

But in general, you’re going to be eating simple, boring, but nutritionally packed meals for 6 out of 7 days.

Then one day a week you’re going to splurge.

Not just cheat, but splurge on everything you’ve been deferring.

Notice we didn’t say “depriving.”

But we want you to accept that this will be boring at first and sometimes inconvenient.

If we tell you this will be a walk in the park and effortless, then we’d be lying to you, and you deserve to know the truth.

And you’d therefore be disappointed and think the plan isn’t working, and never trust anything we tell you in the future.

Yes, it’s way more fun to put the weight on than take it off.

The plan, however, is specifically designed to make it as painless as possible while creating a long-term, lasting change in your flavor-craving taste buds.

Come join us on our natural weight loss journey!  We’d love to have you along!

Have an awesome day!
